Maybe the quality is different at different places down south but I had BAD luck with my trailer that i got from down there...fell apart after 6 months of use and was junk! Luckily, it got rear ended and since it was so cheaply priced from down there, I was able to use it for 2 years and still get all but $50 of my money back from the insurance company.

16" OC frame isn't necessarily cheap though, it is actually an upgrade from most mfg's.

They seem well thought out but its a gamble on how well they are put together and the quality of materials. I cant seem to find any reviews on them online

IIRC that company was under a different name two years ago. Not 100% sure on that.

Maybe it was the same POS company that my POS trailer was made by! Had nothing but problems with them from the delivery and everything thereafter. Guy wouldnt return my emails and calls were dead and did a little diggin here on the internet and found out the guy went bankrupt right after I took delivery of my trailer!

So I called them up and spoke to a sales rep, they can have a custom trailer built in 4 weeks and their prices seem too good to be true. If anyone is in the douglas, GA area stop by their shop and report back. I know the price is lower because they sell factory direct but dang those are cheap.
